    The admins, for example, might see a "trend" developing for a CT-like subject. Even if 1/3 of the site's active users at a particular time seem to be jumping into the fray, it may be something that's too detrimental to the site & reputation as a whole - so they don't go for it. It doesn't become an activity, or it might become a bannable offense if it gets too ridiculous.

    Other times, the site might jump on a hot topic like the live grenade of gun control - potentially driving off or alienating some users depending where the chips land.

    That's partly why kos rightly deserves the right to hit "Reset" and lay ground rules.

    Not all "big" topics will be selected, despite community participation, simply because the topic doesn't fit within certain internal guidelines that help provide the infrastructure that we are operating within.

    Similarly, some not so "big" topics might be worth popping into the community's wider lens - even if they don't meet the current threshold.

    The tricky bit is determining how to find and select such topics for action.

    ...suggestions...?  ;)
